About This Car
1987 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107) Left Hand Drive
Midnight Blue (904) with Royal Blue Leather (272) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)
42,000 miles (speedometer is in km)
A beautifully appointed late model V8 SL with very high factory specification.
The first owner of this car spared no expense when selecting the factory fitted options, choosing Leather Seats, Rear Child Seats (Leather), Automatic Climate Control, Orthopaedic Front Seat Backrest and an Outside Air Temperature Gauge.
The total price of this car when new would have been £41,700, with almost £4,000 in options.
To put that into perspective, those figures adjusted for inflation in 2019 would see this car retail at over £120,000.
A unique opportunity to purchase a low mileage 500SL with an enviable list of factory fitted options – the perfect car for continental touring, or to keep at your European home.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
